into the big week of the first debate. ohio without a doubt a must-win state for governor romney. here's the new "the washington post" poll. you see the numbers right here. the president above 50, six-point lead in the state of ohio. that's one poll. but if you put together what we call a poll of polls, looking at now a half dozen polls conducted over the past two weeks, look what you get. a six-point lead for the president of the united states and again, a must-win state for mitt romney. that is the state of ohio. another must-win, i can give you a mathematical scenario for romney to win without florida but it's very difficult. so what about florida? two new polls out today, one is an arg poll shows the president with a five-point lead. here's the "washington post" poll you just mentioned, shows the president with a four-point lead. again, what we like to do when you have a lot of polls is add them all up and average them out. this is more than a half dozen polls conducted over the last two weeks. what do you get? a four-point lead for the president in the state of florida when you av
